Are bonnet lengths the same across models?

hi, I was looking at some forum motors pics and it struck me that my ill-fitting bonnet might actually just be completely wrong. I doesn't really tie into the wings at all, being about 1-2 inches longer. It looks in line up by the door mirrors, if a little sunken on one side. Maybe it shouldn't be in line with the wings up by the windscreen which could help it match at the grill

According to the parts listings, one bonnet fits all models from start to end of production.

The bonnet is the only part on the front of a Stilo that's the same across all models (3 door, 5 door and estate). Front wings, headlamps and front bumper are different for 3 and 5 door versions.

Perhaps someone has fitted 3 door front wings to the car, causing them not to line up.

had another look and its probably only about 1cm forward, but looks further due to the angles. Maybe at the rear the line i think it should take is not the actual line, and will be fine adjusted. Its a 3-door btw. I also just thought, maybe its on purpose to give the car a more aggressive posture
